'Phantom', the eagerly awaited second CD by (((S))), appears like a liberation of an entire scene that seems frozen in 30 years, spreading spasmodically attached depression and often enough, it just seems unauthentic. Already alike with his debut album "Ghost" inspired the Dane (((S))) listeners and critics, and was knighted by MICK MERCER as "Album of the Year 2009 ".

In recent years, the New Wave of New Wave has been awash with eighties-esque Wave-Rock. Many occasional and one-hit wonders have drained into something between pop and rip-off, leaving fans with tailored-for-MTV retro-imitations and other The-Cure-wannabes. A true trailblazer comes in the shape of a band from Cologne, Germany. With two highly regarded albums and several singles, 'The SlimP” have caused a stir both in and outside of the scene. The SlimP creates music that is more than the sum... Topics: Darkwave, Alternative, Indie, Gothic, Wave, Deathrock, Batcave, Gothic-Rock
